I know that I’ve been *very* absent for the majority of this year. It has been a life changing year with lots of ups and downs but I think everything is calming down now.
I checked in with the stats on this site and I was a little surprised that so many people are still swinging by to visit and read my articles. I give a big heart-felt thank you to all you wonderful mamas and papas. I feel blessed to have such a great blogging community.
Little A is doing very well. She is going to be 3 in February! How that’s possible is totally beyond me. I just want to use a freeze ray or something to get her to stop growing. She is definitely my daughter. She has her very own ideas on nearly everything and is talking in ways that I didn’t know existed for her age. Her intelligence and empathy blow me away each and every day.
I am taking great joy in being a mama but I have found, in this last year, that I need more for me, as a person. So I have been breaking back into the workforce. I did some work as a freelance writer (as you might remember) and now I’ve opened my own business as an online presence manager. It’s a huge step and I am uber excited about the prospects and possibilities.
I have moved from the Seattle area back down to the Portland area and I’m helping small businesses get themselves online. It’s astounding to me how many small businesses in America aren’t online. The hard truth is that, unless you are online, you will eventually die. I really want my local community to grow and flourish so I’m working really hard to create strong presence and engagement for them in the world wide web.
I will be blogging here occasionally but most of my focus is on my new business. I would love to still engage with all my readers so I invite you to come on over and take a look at the site. I am also on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Come on over and hang out with me!
